About June Croll
I am a weaver/textile artist. Weaving by hand on traditional-style handlooms I produce contemporary woven textiles in my Norwich studio. I work to commission, exhibit regularly, and have work in private and public collections, including Norwich Castle Museum. Woven with delicate dyed and painted threads, especially silk, work ranges from gossamer-fine silk scarves to woven transparencies. Large scale hangings and 3D pieces may also incorporate materials such as copper wire and found objects as I love exploring the possibilities of unlikely combinations. I like to work with sustainable natural yarns, which I often colour with plant dyes, some of which I grow. Recurring influences are the fleeting changes in nature: of skies, ripples of wind and water. I also enjoy investigating the effects of season weather and tide; and the weaving traditions of Norwich. My studio can be visited by arrangement; I enjoy working to commission, provide bespoke weaving tuition and run workshops on a variety of textile skills.
